The Fourth of July is a great time to get together with family and friends, fire up the grill, and celebrate our nation’s independence. It’s also a great opportunity to get outside and get active. There are plenty of activities to choose from, so there’s no excuse not to get up and move! If you’re looking for something low-key, take a leisurely stroll around your neighborhood or go for a swim at your local pool. If you’re feeling more adventurous, head to the nearest park for a game of frisbee or go hiking/biking on one of the many trails available in Tulsa (Turkey Mountain is our favorite!). So, whether you’re looking to burn some calories or simply want to enjoy the outdoors, make the most of this holiday and get moving!
For Native Americans, Pride Month is more than just a time to celebrate LGBTQ2S+ culture and history. It is an opportunity to learn more about our rich and diverse cultures, as well as a time to reflect. Despite making up nearly 3% of the U.S. population, Native Americans are often left out of the conversation when it comes to LGBTQ2S+ rights and representation. This June let’s change that!

In order to better serve the needs of American Indian youth ages 6 to 24, IHCRC began a redesign and reinvigoration of its youth programs last year. The team noted that while suicide and drug use prevention remain crucial, IHCRC's youth programs must also be designed to address one of the most important characteristics of care for American Indians, attentiveness to the four aspects of an individual's nature (physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual).
Interesting conversation and a warm cup of coffee, what more could you ask for?
In spring of 2020, IHCRC's Behavioral Health Department had a waiting list of more than 60 youth. Additionally, staff had begun to recognize the need to offer support for American Indian youth identifying as LGBTQ2S+. A study by Kids Data found that 7.6% of California's Native American youth identified as LGBTQ2S+. Using that percentage to extrapolate Oklahoma numbers, more than 1,800 Native American adolescents ages 10-18 are LGBTQ2S+. (2,610 when adolescents who are dual race or ethnicity are included.)
